Acclaimed modern flamenco ensemble Bandaluzia led by ARIA nominated Flamenco guitarist Damian Wright will present a spectacular new show that showcases contemporary flamenco dance and music whilst displaying the essential characteristics of the flamenco tradition. A journey through this unique and incredible artform by some Australia and Spain’s most revered flamenco artists.
Bandaluzia are celebrated for their powerful performances, unique sound and explosive displays of dazzling musicianship and virtuosity that has made Bandaluzia a great success at festivals and theatres across Australia. In 2018 Damian performed in Jerez, Spain at La Conferencia de Jose Luis Balao as part of the Jerez International Guitar Festival and was invited to perform as a solo artist at The Rajasthan International Folk Festival, India as well as The Shanghai Fringe Festival, China.
Also featuring Dance Australia Magazine’s “Most Outstanding Dancer of 2013” and co- winner of “Best Dance Show” at The Adelaide Fringe 2014 Jessica Statham (flamenco dance), Rosalie Cocchiaro (flamenco dance) who, living in Madrid for 10 years, has performed in many of Madrid’s most premier Tablaos (flamenco venues), including Cafe de Chinitas and Torres Bermejas. On guitars & mandolin Freedman fellowship winner and National Jazz Awards finalist Ben Hauptmann (Katie Noonan, Gurrumul, Lior) & brilliant percussionist James Hauptmann (James Morrison, Vince Jones, Bluejuice) Bandaluzia are also highly revered for their ability to mix elements of other genres into their performances, whether being the rich harmonies of Jazz, the exotic melodies of the Orient or the infectious rhythms of South America. An experience that ignites the senses with the grace of Flamenco.
“Bandaluzia is winning high praise for its unique Australian interpretation of the powerful music and dance form….with their thrilling blend of passion and virtuosity” Gabrielle Wilder , SMH
